Gossamer to Silk conversion
If you could downgrade any crafting mat it would greatly effect the entire market.

And…? Anet has done things in the past that have “greatly effected the entire market”. So its clearly within their wheelhouse to do it again. I don’t think its that extreme of a request to want to exchange mats that I’m not going to use for mats of the same type that I will use.
sell gossamer and buy silk then mate problem solved
Thats great, if gossamer sold for much of anything. sell price bolt of Gossamer: 98c, buy price silk scrap: 2.35s. In case you didn’t catch that, I went with the highest price for gossamer and the lowest price for silk. So for a full stack of Gossamer…I’d get about 100 silk scraps which turns into 33 bolts of silk.
Man, they will never change it, cos this will ruin whole market. Also if they make it for gossamer they will need to change this for whole thing, then cotton etc will drop at price and according to that damask, which is one of best profitable things in this game – and no1 will give a… about ascended rarity cos u will be able to make this for a very low price( atm worst thing is gathering damask) and that is something that can’t happen according to anets words.

Shocking interview with Anet WvW Dev
Oh it’ll happen alright. I’d say a month or two before a new item tier is introduced that requires thousands of Gossamer. See Silk, Bazaar lootboxes and ascended gear.
Save the Bell Choir activity!
Kasteros, let me make sure I understand you, being able to go from a common material lets just say jute to another tier lets say wool would ruin the market? Making damask and ascended armor not worth the grind or seem as rare? The only other way I can interpret your statement is that you already know about being able to go from kitten etc, but you think that some of the mats are so widely available that everything would become common if you could convert backwards. Either way, I don’t think it would effect it so dramatically as you and Ulion seem to think.
Cafard, you’re referencing the legendary armor that will require 10k Gossamer to make right? /sarcasm.
Now if only I could get someone from Anet to acknowledge this as quickly as all of you…
